Cheap alternatives for Nikon D600

Design

1.resolution

1176 x 784px

Resolution is an essential indicator of a screen's image quality, representing the maximum amount of pixels that can be shown on the screen. The resolution is given as a compound value, comprised of horizontal and vertical pixels.
2.pixel density

442ppi

Pixel density is a measurement of a screen's resolution, expressed as the number of pixels per inch (PPI) on the screen. A higher pixel density translates into more clarity and sharpness for the images rendered on the screen, thus improving the quality of the viewing experience.
3.weather-sealed (splashproof)
Nikon D600
The device is protected with extra seals to prevent failures caused by dust, raindrops, and water splashes.
4.is dustproof and water-resistant
Nikon D600
The device is dustproof and water-resistant. Water-resistant devices can resist the penetration of water, such as powerful water jets, but not being submerged into water.
5.Has a built-in focus motor
Nikon D600
The focus motor moves the lens in order to autofocus. For system cameras, having a focus motor in the camera's body allows you to use a wide range of lenses, including lenses which do not have their own focus motor. For compact cameras, a focus motor is usually built-in.
6.viewfinder coverage

100%

With 100% coverage, you can compose the image correctly when you capture the photo. With less than full coverage, you may have to crop your photos afterward to get them looking perfect.

Optics

1.focus points

39

The more focus points the more flexibility in picking which part of the scene to focus on. They also give the image sensor a better probability in identifying the right area of the scene to focus on in more automatic modes.
2.sensor size

35.9 x 24mm

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.
3.has AF tracking
Nikon D600
With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.
4.Has phase-detection autofocus for photos
Nikon D600
Phase-detection autofocus is much faster than a contrast detection autofocus, allowing for sharper images.
5.maximum light sensitivity

25600 ISO

With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
6.megapixels (main camera)

24.3MP

The number of megapixels determines the resolution of the images captured with the main camera. A higher megapixel count means that the camera is capable of capturing more details. However, the megapixel count is not the only important element determining the quality of an image.

Videography

1.video recording (main camera)

1080 x 30fps

The maximum resolution available for videos shot with the main camera. Although it may be possible to choose among other frame rates, those recordings usually have lower resolutions.
2.Has phase-detection autofocus for videos
Nikon D600
A phase-detection autofocus system is faster than a contrast detection autofocus system. Even when recording scenes with a lot of fast movements, the videos are sharp and clear.
3.has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Nikon D600
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
4.Has timelapse function
Nikon D600
A timelapse shows a long passage of time sped up. A series of photographs taken from the same position over a long period is joined together to create a short video. It is great way to capture things like the setting sun, or clouds moving across the sky.
5.has a 24p cinema mode
Nikon D600
24p is a video format (24 frames per second) traditionally used in cinema. Nowadays, it is used to create film-like motion characteristics.

Audio

1.has a stereo microphone
Nikon D600
A stereo microphone allows to record audio files or movies in stereo without an external microphone.
2.has a microphone input
Nikon D600
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
3.number of microphones

1

More microphones result in better sound quality and enable the device to filter out background noise.
4.has stereo speakers
Nikon D600
Devices with stereo speakers deliver sound from independent channels on both left and right sides, creating a richer sound and a better experience.

Battery

1.Battery life (CIPA)

900shots

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.
2.has a removable battery
Nikon D600
The battery is removable and can be replaced by the user if broken.
3.battery power

1900mAh

Battery power, also called battery capacity, represents the amount of electrical energy stored in the battery. Measured in milliampere-hours (mAh), it indicates how much electric power can be used over time. More battery power translates into longer battery life.
4.has a rechargeable battery
Nikon D600
The battery can be recharged and used over again.
5.has a battery level indicator
Nikon D600
An indicator shows you when the device has low battery.

4.has an external memory slot
Nikon D600
The device has a standard memory slot (such as an SD or micro SD card slot) that enables you to extend the built-in internal storage with affordable memory modules, or easily retrieve data, such as photographs, from the memory card.
5.dynamic range

14.2Evs

The better the dynamic range the system captures a wider number of values from dark to light leading to more details in low and highlights. Source: DxOMark.
6.Has a remote control
Nikon D600
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
